SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc., (NASDAQ: MYGN), a leader in genetic testing and precision medicine, today announced the launch of UroSuite, a comprehensive suite of genetic risk assessment tests that cover every stage of prostate cancer care.
UroSuite includes Myriad’s Prolaris® Prostate Cancer Test, MyRisk™ Hereditary Cancer Test, BRACAnalysis CDx® and Precise™ Tumor Molecular Profile Test. The combination of tests provides integrated genetic insights and makes it easier to tailor therapy and clinical trial selection for patients.
“Today’s launch of UroSuite reinforces Myriad Genetics’ commitment to advancing health and well-being for all through a set of testing solutions for prostate cancer care, best-in-class support, and access to genetics and cancer specialists,” said Paul J.

“There are educational and utilization gaps in the adoption of genetic testing in prostate cancer. Clinicians now have access to tools that can assist them with turnaround times and report interpretation, thereby aligning with national guidelines on genetic testing,” added Neal Shore, M.D., FACS, Medical Director for the Carolina Urologic Research Center and Chief Medical Officer, Surgical Oncology/Urology, GenesisCare, U.S. “The UroSuite portfolio provides genetic insights based on gene expression biomarkers, comprehensive germline testing, and tumor profiling, facilitating more streamlined reporting, and thus enhancing the potential for personalized patient treatment.”
